Abstract
    Seven harpacticoid copepods have been found living on the lower parts of Spartina alterniflora culms, from Cocodrie marshes in Louisiana (U.S.A.). This contribution deals exclusively with the systematics of these species. Mesochra wolskii Jakubisiak is redescribed and a new key to the species of the genus is given. M. neotropica Jakobi is allocated to the genus Amphibiperita n. gen. and is redescribed and discussed in detail. A new laophontid species, F. mangalis n. sp. is described and placed together with Laophonte chathamensis Sars in the genus Folioquinpesn. gen. Some amendations on the description of Schizopera knabeni Lang are given and the peculiar shape of the furcal setae of Nannopus palustris Brady is illustrated.
